Not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but the trees on Tower Bridge Road
by the Bermondsey Square
development are being suffocated by the new buildings and scaffolding. I am also quite certain that two of these trees have disappeared. The two trees that remain seem to have very little room left to survive and grow.
Can the developers just remove trees without consultation and do they not have a duty to replant any of these if they are damaged in the building process?
Incidentally, not sure if the council did this... A tree near the Bermondsey Street
tennis courts was knocked down after it lost a large branch during one of the storms in Feb this year. Someone has taken some artistist liberty and turned the trunk into a seat. (i like it!) V nice! I did however, think it was a bit drastic for the council to take the whole tree down because of a single branch...
Does anyone know if there is someone at Southwark Council
that deals with the trees that I can write to?
